Re: SIG scopes

This is exactly the discussion I hoped to spark, so I definitely don't mind your debate :-)
Michelle and I happened to have a chat about this today, as she mentioned, and will discuss further with the TOC.
In summary, my personal opinion is that we need to:
1. Agree what the scope of the CNCF is.
2. Partition that scope into bite-sized chunks that cover the entire scope (these were the original 7 proposed SIGs).
3. Make sure that each of the chunks is appropriately taken care of. Over time the details of "appropriately taken care of" will clearly change, as hot spots come and go (FaaS, Service Mesh, Secure Containers, Edge, ..... ), projects come and go, etc. In the extreme, a chunk may be completely dormant for a period of time, or temporarily focussed on one specific subset. But it's still a chunk of the logical total CNCF scope.
There are many different ways to execute on the above. The 7 originally proposed SIG's and their scopes are one way.
Other ways are fine, as long as they achieve the overall goal over time.
There are several possible ways to implement the above strategy.
